Trump’s Border Wall Breached By Smugglers Many Times

Smugglers have Breached the Trump Administration’s Border Wall, along the US-Mexico Border, more than 3,000 times, Government Maintenance Records Reveal.

Nearly 500 miles of Barrier was Constructed by the Trump Administration, beginning in 2019, mostly in Rural New Mexico and Arizona.

Trump touted the “big, beautiful wall” as the “Rolls-Royce” of Barriers, but Smugglers have Breached that Wall, at least 3,272 times, mostly with common Power Tools found at hardware stores.

“No structure is impenetrable, so we will continue to work to focus resources on modern, effective border management measures to improve safety and security,” Luis Miranda, a Spokesperson for Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) said.

He added that Border Security “requires a variety of resources and efforts, infrastructure, technology, and personnel”, much of which was Not Funded, when Trump’s Wall was Constructed.

Prior to its Construction, Trump promised Mexico would Pay for Construction of the Border Wall, and that it would be “virtually impenetrable”.

Ultimately, 458 miles of New Border Fencing, was Paid for by Taxpayers, at a Cost of $11 billion, and there was evidence as early as 2019, that Smugglers were sawing through the Boundary with $100 Power Tools.

Part of the Border Wall is Constructed using, Posts Cemented in Concrete, at the base, which support a Long Lintel at the Top.

Smugglers are easily able to Saw through the Posts and Swing them open, then continue using the same Breach until the Damage is detected by CPB.

Other Sections have been Damaged by Monsoons, partly because the Concrete didn't have time to set. Unless the Mix has Retarder, or some Cement Replacement Material in it. It will generally be hard enough to walk on in less than 24 hours. Mixes are usually specified with a Design Strength, the Compressive Strength that the Concrete will reach in a period of time, typically 28 days. As a general rule, at 7 days it will have reached around Two Thirds to Three Quarters of the Design Strength.

Smuggling Organizations have sawn, large enough holes, to pass an SUV through. In One instance, an SUV loaded with 23 Migrants passed through a Section of Border Wall near San Diego and soon after Collided with a Semi-Truck, killing 13 People.

By 2021, the Government had spent another $2.6 million in Taxpayer Funds to Repair the “wall”, and cited the Lack of Infrastructure and Personnel, as an Impediment to keeping it Intact.
